Adolescent Health

Tweens and Teens

The teenage years can be filled with angst for both the teens and their parents. We offer teens a safe place where their health needs and questions can be addressed in a confidential way, while at the same time working to facilitate communication with parents. We start this process by encouraging our tweens to begin completing their own intake forms and prepare to be examined without their parent present. In order to encourage trust and independence we ask this from all of our older teens. You can view our confidentiality policy here.

To help address the physical, emotional and social needs of our teens here are some of the services we offer:
